Long time ago
Back in the mist of time
Back when the crystal waters flowed
There was a world
So strange and so beautiful
All life would flourish and would grow

Years went by, time just fell away
Love was worshiped like the sun
But as we arrive at the house
Of the water sign
We're living in strange times

Strange times
Strange times

What do we need?
What do we hunger for?
Who holds the secrets, who will know?
Temples of greed
In ruins on the river bed
Wastelands that lived before the snow

Time stands still
As we race through the universe
On our way to the sun
And as we arrive at the house
Of the water sign
We're living in strange times

Strange times
Strange times

It's you and I forever
We won't be afraid
Even if the stars are falling down
Down, down, down, down
Falling down

Time stands still
As we race through the universe
On our way to the sun
And as we arrive at the house
Of the water sign
We're living in strange times

Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times
